We went to Cold Spring on Sunday, one of our favorite little towns near the Hudson River.
After lunch at our favorite place, Don usually takes L for a walk to the Hudson River, while I have half an hour to browse through some of the antique stores.
Two blocks away from the Hudson Hil’s restaurant is Pop’s barn sale.
I found it with my mom when she was visiting one day, and I checked it out again when I saw the sign.
Now, this is a garage sale! I bought a vintage Heidi book for just $1 that I’ll be adding to my Etsy store.

I found a few other vintage treasures:
I turned it around and held my breath: it’s from my hometown, Bremen! It’s the Park Hotel. I’ve taken L there on one of our visits.
What’s the likelihood I’d find a postcard of my hometown halfway around the world? I bought it for $1.
I also bought a 1894 recipe book and an account book for $6 that has pretty funny stories in it like this one about a “woman’s tonic.” I just can’t pass up little treasures like this because one day these little pieces of history won’t be around anymore.
